This series of modern pedestal tables is an expression of what is possible in a small package. I like to push new ground with these pieces and I will often use them to prove an idea. If the idea works out then I feel the confidence to tackle larger pieces. An example of this is the relationship between Pedestal Table #3 and Dining Table #2. The 20" table helped to clarify the system. Now that I was confident I could invest more time and materials with confidence. The same relationship is possible between these tables and other pieces for your home. They can serve as inspiration for pieces like a contemporary glass end table of other modern wood end tables.
